It was my laptop that was stolen - and yes, it was finally returned. I thought I would set the record straight and tell you the whole story. Friday night I accidentally left my laptop/pocket book and keys in the car - I was rushing to get to a neighbors house to pick up my daughter, On Saturday, I noticed my laptop and money were missing. The police came out immediately to write a report and fingerprinted the car. I was very upset - and the Trooper told me it might make sense to head over the the local pawnshop and check it out. I had harsh judgements of pawn shops - crocked business and con artists. But, as soon as I walked in I was convinced otherwise. Candee - who works Saturdays for The Gold Post in Schwenksville - was nothing but nice and empathetic to my story. I told her how my laptop was stolen, how it had years of priceless photos of my two kids, how i would do anything to get it back. She assured me, that if my laptop came into the shop (or their sister shop) that she would call me. And 1.5 hours later, she did! (YAY!!!) But she couldn't buy the laptop since it was stolen (NO!!!). Instead, she called the police and gave them a description. The police knew immediately who it was. By Sunday night, the police called to tell me the laptop was recovered. All my photos were still on the computer and that the criminals were arrested. The police did their job - but I owe the majority of this to Candee. And today, I stopped in to thank her with a well deserved reward.

And yes, they were local kids - 16 and 17 years old. The one who stole my laptop lives around the corner from me. I will not share names - as I too as a youngster did many things wrong - but learned from my mistakes. I wish the same for these two kids.
